The Middlesex High School varsity football team will open its regular season at Mathews at 7 p.m. on Thursday, September 3.
Second year Charger head coach Bill Jarvis said, “We’ve got 52 kids out on junior varsity and varsity, which is more than we have had in the past. It always helps when you have more kids.
“We are not very big but we are stronger and we have more speed than last year,” said Coach Jarvis. “We’ve also seen some real positive improvements in the two scrimmages against Windsor and Christchurch.”
“We only had five seniors to graduate from last year’s team,” said Coach Jarvis. “We’ve got a strong offensive line in that most of them played last year.”
